Rhona the Spaniel Mini Album

Hi everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful New Year … I thought I share what I have been working on for the last couple of days… it’s still work in progress

I am making a 6″ x 4.5″ Mini Album that will feature wee Rhona our Sprocker Spaniel, I spent time up in my shed cutting all the pages and inking, matting and layering them,  got the front and back covers done and the binding done.

I love the bunny rabbit paper i used on the cover pages, it is from the First Edition Wild at Heart 6×6 stack, the chipboard letters were from Stampers grove and because they had a glossy finish I used alcohol inks to colour them.

This week I will fill the pages with polaroid pictures of Rhona printed out from my Phone on the Instax Printer.

Really looking forward to finishing this wee book… as always thank for popping round and I shall see you soon

Smile Mini Book

Helllloooooo….

It’s time for a smile.. i’m back in my shed again after being absent for a few months!

I wanted to ease myself back into crafting mode again so picked something that would come together quite quickly and wasn’t too big a project..

I used my bind it all for the closure and corrugated cardboard for the front and back covers..

I also made small policy type / scrapalope envelopes for the inside from Prima Boheimian Rhapsody 6×6 patterned paper

I used velcro closures under each flap of the envelopes to keep them closed nice and snug

  • Bakers Twine
  • Hot Glue, Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive and Scotch ATG Tape Gun

and then I made myself a wee pincushion with leftover fabric from the hand bound book I made a couple or three weeks ago..

I got the idea for this from one that I had bought in a wee shop a couple of weeks ago

It is teeny only measuring 2″ x 2″ … it was fun to make

  • Floral Fabric
  • Green Felt
  • Flower Bead
